That sky is awesome (as is the car)!

Did you use a polarizing filter?

Always. It is standard equipment

I had one when I was shooting film, but I don't think I could find one that fits my current digital camera.

if you still have the one you previously uses you can purchase an adapter ring so it will fit the diameter of the new lenses. This works best of the filter is larger than the current lens mount... not so well if it is the other way around.

A '41 Chev, It has a 216 inline 6-cylinder engine with a 3-speed transmission.

I don't know the specs of the one I want yet, but it's at least a '49-'52 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup. :]

Ah, probably. Plus transporting it from where it is to where I live would probably be tough, too. I'll just focus on the truck that I've got here! ^^

WOW!!! beautiful shot!!! i like the sky!!!!
Reply

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
Some how Dave, the sky is always a major element when it comes to this car. Part of it is that I use a polarizing filter, part of it is that the car is situated alone an east west axis... which enhances the effect of the filter and the last part it that the picture needs to be taken in the late afternoon for correct lighting. All of that seems to work together to make this care quite photogenic.

There seems to be less black paint left now on this 41 Chevrolet.

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
lol.... well Ryan it is 3 years older and constantly exposed to the elements. Of course I suppose I may have exposed and processed for different elements too... I have not really checked for that, but it is possible.

I'm used to cars out here, they stay the same for a very long time usually.
Reply
:iconwaynebenedet:
WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
you know Ryan, I just had a look... I think it is the angle of the shot, the lighting of the day and the processing. When I compare closely, I don't really see any paint missing, but I do see colour shifts... that can only be my processing. (I was pushing for much stronger colours and contrast in this version)

it is a little hard to avoid without a saw or axe. It will likely become part of this image as it develops.

I like it because it looks like a crown on the truck. I guess the truck earned it with age. Also I like how the trunk is bent so you cannot see it in the rear window of the truck. Great image.

WayneBenedet Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
It does have that sense about it. I had not really thought of it in that way. The lack of tree in the back window is a bit interesting. I did not really look at the tree when I was there, preferring the car itself I suppose. When I get back I will try to remember to take a good look at the tree.
